Manchester United will be without new signing Edinson Cavani for their trip to Newcastle on Saturday, with the Uruguayan forced to quarantine following his arrival in the UK.

The striker, 33, will be available to make his debut against his old side PSG on Tuesday though, if deemed fit enough to play.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is handed a further attacking headache with the fact that Anthony Martial will begin his three-match domestic suspension this week after his red card against Tottenham.

He will also sit out the home games against Chelsea and Arsenal, a vital few games for the embattled manager.

United lost 6-1 at home to Tottenham last time out, and they will be desperate to bounce back with a victory on Tyneside this weekend.

Cavani has been pictured training at home this weekend as he bids to be ready for match action as soon as the Covid guidelines allow.

After spending seven years at PSG, it is perhaps fitting that his first appearance for United could be back at the Parc des Princes against them.

The 33-year-old Uruguayan netted a total of 200 goals in 301 matches for the French giants, before heading for pastures new in the Premier League.
